Don’t forget to turn your clocks back this weekend.

If you are like me this isn’t your favorite time of year, so let’s make the best out of it. Try to invite friends or family over or make a nice comfort food dinner so when it gets dark out early you may not notice.

Power saving mode. How does it effect your energy savings and being green?

It’s amazing how each and every small thing we can do on a daily basis that will help with our environment.  You can easily save energy in your office,  school or organization without much effort.  If you have purchased a copier, printer or any other office equipment with an ENERGY STAR feature, you are on your way to help save our planet. It’s up to you to make sure you are using these power management settings properly to get the most effective cost and energy savings.

Don’t worry about recovery time, ENERGY STAR copiers will recover within 30 seconds after resuming from their low power saving mode. Setting the machine to it’s default energy saving mode will help you even if you don’t want to be bothered manually setting it up.

Any machine you have that you can utilize the ENERGY STAR feature is always helpful,  including computers. So many of us just walk away from them and don’t even think about them sitting there wasting energy, resources and your money!

It’s easy to do your part and once the settings are introduced, there’s nothing more to think about!

OEM vs. Compatible Ink and Toner Cartridges

What’s the difference? Yes, you can save money by purchasing compatible ink and toner cartridges; but at what cost? The first issue is that you don’t know what you are getting with the compatible cartridges. Who knows if it’s up to the manufacturer’s specifications. Also, it automatically voids your warranty with your manufacturer.If you have a contract with a dealer like Brothers II Business Machines, the repair will not be covered if it is caused by a non-OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) product.

Is it worth more in the long run to use a potential inferior product that could ultimately lead to the breakdown of your machine or produce a poor product? Do you want your business letters and forms to go out to your customers looking streaky or blotchy?

Brothers II Business Machines only uses OEM ink and toner cartridges. Yes, they cost a little more. But in the long run, they save you and your company time and money.
